Acne Treatments

Acne can be a painful and socially embarrassing skin condition. Comedones (commonly known as blackheads) are the key feature of acne.

We offer treatments for blackheads (open comedones) and whiteheads (closed comedones).

Treatment Options:

Effective Skincare
If you have mild to moderate acne and congested or oily skin, sometimes all that is required is a good skin care regimen to follow. Appointees will receive a skin assessment and be recommended an appropriate regimen.

Prescription Creams
Various prescription creams can be used to prevent and/or treat for mild to moderate acne. These creams may contain antimicrobials, antibiotics, retinoids (vitamin A derivatives) as well as salicylic acid (beta-hydroxy acid), glycolic acid (alpha-hydroxy acid), sulphur and nicotinamide (Vitamin B3).

Prescription Medication
In the event that you need prescription medication as a more combative remedy for your acne, we can provide the necessary prescriptions after a consultation. Some of the remedies we offer are:

  • Antibiotic tablets (often used in the interim whilst other treatments are started).
  • Additional hormonal treatments for female patients.
  • Injections of cortisone for quick relief.
  • Oral vitamin A derived medication
Acne Scarring

If there is one area of skin care that proves that people are not the same, it’s acne scarring.

Acne scars may be the result of acne; however, they are not treated in the same manner for everyone.

Fading acne scars is not quick process, but a journey with your dermatologist.

 We provide the following treatment options:

  • Prescription creams.
  • Products and cosmeceuticals.
  • Glycolic acid peels.
  • Dermapen micro-needling.
  • Dermal Fillers.
  • Hormonal therapy.
Mole Examination – Dermascope

Keeping track of moles can be a lifesaving decision – particularly, if you have a history of skin cancer linked to moles.

Contact our office and Dr Olivier will look for any suspicious changes in your moles when you have a skin examination.

Your age, sex and when the mole appeared will be taken into consideration.

Mole Mapping – (New)

Mole mapping is a screening technique aimed at early detection of skin cancer. It utilizes advanced computer technology to capture comprehensive photographs of your entire body, which are then merged to create a unified image. This baseline image serves as a reference for future comparisons.

During subsequent follow-up visits, typically scheduled annually, a new set of whole body photographs is taken using the same specialized computer system. Artificial intelligence algorithms within the computer analyze and compare the images, identifying which moles and lesions remain consistent, which are new, and which exhibit changes over time. This enables you to monitor and track any suspicious developments year after year.

Dr. Olivier makes use of the Fotofinder, which is the international gold standard machine.

Skin Cancer Screening & Management

If you experience any sudden skin cancer symptoms or have been treated for skin cancer, be sure to visit our practice to get a test or check-up.

We offer skin cancer treatment for those that have been diagnosed with skin cancer.

Available skin cancer treatments:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy

Men & Women Hair Loss

At Mediderm, we understand that hair loss can impact an individual’s self-esteem.

Whether your hair loss is due to self-inflicted, an autoimmune disease or the result of the ageing process, we offer treatments to both treat and prevent hair loss.

Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin is overproduced. People of colour are more prone to hyperpigmentation because of the connect to high melanin production.

That said, hyperpigmentation is treatable with some of the following solutions available at Mediderm:

  • Chemical peel.
  • Retinoids.
  • Prescribed topical treatments.
  • Broad spectrum SPF.
Auto-Immune Skin Disorders

Autoimmune conditions occur when your immune system mistakenly attacks your body. Conditions vary from person to person, requiring individualised treatments.

As such, you can be sure that, after consultation with Dr Olivier, you will be given an accurate diagnosis and gain more control over your life.

Hyperhidrosis & Iontophoresis (Excessive Sweating) – (New)

Increased sweating is a common problem, especially in Namibia. There are several options available to manage this condition.

These include Botox injections, prescription medication and iontophoresis. At Mediderm, we will assess your needs and treat accordingly.

We are pleased to announce we offer Iontophoresis as well, which helps with sweaty palms and soles.

Adults & Children Nail Disorders

Nail infections or disorders affect not only the nail but the surrounding structures such as your cuticles.

During a nail examination at Mediderm all these structures are assessed.

Cosmetic Dermatology

Treatments

Micro Needling

Micro needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure that uses small needles to gently prick the surface of your skin.

This procedure promotes the generation of new collagen and skin tissue. Once you have completed this process, you will experience a smoother, firmer, and toned skin surface.

Anti-Ageing

Contrary to popular belief, anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation treatments are not solely designed for seniors.

Anti-ageing treatments focus on treating minor skin damage and promoting a more youthful and vibrant looking skin.

Whether it is fine lines that concern you or you want to maintain your vibrant skin, there are treatments available at Mediderm.

Dermatologic Surgery

Treatments

Removal of Skin Tags and Warts

Skin tags are common benign soft growths of skin that protrude from the surface of the skin. If you have them, you may want to remove them.

There are several options available for their removal, including cryotherapy, electrodessication, cautery, and surgical removal.

Minor Excision of Skin Tumours

Skin tumours are growths on the skin that can be cancerous or harmless. The direct cause of these skin tumours remains unknown. If you notice a skin tumour on your body, do not hesitate to contact us.

Minor skin tumours treatments may include:

Curettage and electrodesiccation: This procedure involves scraping away the tumour tissues (used to treat pre-cancerous tumours).

Surgical excision: This involves cutting into the skin to completely remove the growth, and finally closing the wound with stitches.

Cryosurgery: During this procedure, a measured amount of liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the tumour tissue which kills the tumour.
